We in the Midwest are special. We aren’t too glitzy or plain and don’t move too quickly or too slowly. Our cities are a mix of cultures and cuisines. Our suburbs are family and faith centered. For the most part, we are downright nice. We smile at strangers walking down the street, chip in when neighbors are in need, and embrace the change of seasons.

Welcome to my blog, Midwest Mary. I’m an author and would love to exchange thoughts and ideas with you. We’ll cover a wide variety of topics that are relevant to everyone, but especially so for us in the middle. Please comment and let me know how you agree and disagree. We can learn so much from each other.
